Hi Rorry , I have been on several HAL cruises and I always wear a black suit & tie for the formal dinners in the dining room . However I have seen many men wearing a jacket with co-ordinated slacks & tie . It is certainly not necessary to wear a tux ! And you can always go to the Lido for dinner if you want to dress " smart casual " ( no tie ) . You will find that the Lido menu is rather similar to the one in the dining room . In any case , I'm sure you will enjoy the experience no matter which venue you choose . Lane
